Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Tiny Folded Book (in progress)


Several months ago, I took a bunch of books to Office Depot and asked them to cut the books into smaller pieces. I've worked with the little pieces off and on over time, but nothing has worked really well.

I decided on Thursday that I was going to dive in again. I stayed up and designed a tiny heart pattern. I made up the template and started marking my little book. Here's the first bit folded. It's another linked repeating pattern. Tiny!


One of the problems I've encountered with these tiny books is the lack of clean edges - it really makes a difference trying to mark a pattern when there is text in the way.

I've got some ideas in the works to overcome that problem. I'll see how quickly I can bring them to fruition so you can see!
